Psychologists Make App to Study Happiness

Happiness is a nebulous quality, and one of the hardest things in the world is finding out just what things really make you happy. If you're an iPhone user though, you might soon have help in this daunting task. Matt Killingsworth, a Psychologist at Harvard, has released an iPhone app that aids users in tracking their happiness and figuring out just what it takes to make them content.

In addition to helping users identify what things bring them joy, the app is also intended to aid Killingsworth in a study he is conducting on happiness. Once users download the app, they'll be asked to complete a survey about their lives. Then, throughout the day, their iPhone will occasionally prompt them to give short, 1 minute answers to quick questions about how they are feeling.

Users will have to rate their happiness, and then talk about what they are doing at the moment. Everything from sex to exercise is included as an option, in order to help you pinpoint the things that make you a happier person. After you've given 50 answers, you'll receive a Happiness Report that will rate your happiness and give you tips for how to improve it.

You can check out the TrackYourHappiness app here. Give it a shot if you're curious, but don't take it too seriously if you don't agree with the results. It's just an app, after all.
